Side 1The Stanford Female Seminary was incorporated by the Ky. Legislature on Feb. 26, 1869, but the name was changed to the Stanford Female College in 1871. The original brick structure (west side of building) was completed & the college opened in the fall of 1872. The next year, an addition was built & the original structure housed the students. Side 2
College was organized by citizens of Stanford to provide a collegiate education for their daughters. It had 83 graduates during its history. The school was forced to close in 1907, because it couldn't compete with the public schools supported with tax money. After its closure, the Stanford Elementary School was located here until the 1930s.
